A telling of the fledging careers and early days of the comedy duo that was Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise, from their dance-hall performances of northern England to cult status.
Reece Shearsmith plays young Ernie's father and there's a little nod to him playing Papa Lazarou (The League of Gentlemen (1999)) as he puts make up on towards the beginning.

Sadie Bartholomew: You can't play Cowboys and Indians all your life.
Little Eric: Can't I?
Sadie Bartholomew: Home! Now! Or you'll be late for your dance class.
